Beer Toasts

He that drinketh strong beer and goes to bed right mellow,
Lives as he ought to live and dies a hearty fellow."

O thrice accursed
Be a champagne thirst
When the price of beer's all we've got.

Let's drink the liquid of amber so bright;
Let's drink the liquid with foam snowy while;
Let's drink the liquid that brings all good cheer;
Oh, where is the drink like old-fashioned beer?

W. L. Hassoldt said it best:
None so deaf as those who will not hear.
None so blind as those who will not see.
But I'll wager none so deaf nor blind that he
Sees not nor hears me say come drink this beer.

Who'd care to be a bee and sip
Sweet honey from the flower's lip
When he might be a fly and steer
Head first into a can of beer?

Such power hath beer.
The heart where
Grief hath cankered
Hath one unfailing remedy-the tankard.

Here's to the heavenly brew. As they say at Otter Creek Brewing, Middlebury, Vermont, "For a quart of ale is dish for a king.”

Twas ever thus from childhood's hour,
I've seen my fond hopes disappear;
I've a1ways had a champagne thirst,
But have to be content with beer.
